(Added Oct. 2001) – This was our first real show. We thought we were so good and looking back we were so incredibly lame. Half our set was covers. We had long pauses. Paul had to tune everyone’s instruments. We had some sad little Hoss stickers that we handed out and we thought we were gods. I remember being incredibly nervous even though there were only a dozen people watching. Interesting fact … Bryan did not play this show! It was actually some dude named Shawn who we recruited since Bryan was out of the country for the summer. It’s always funny when we play small shows now because I always look back and think that how things really haven’t changed that much for us. We’re a lot better live (and have much better stickers) but sometimes we still get that blank stare reaction from a dozen people who have forgotten who you are before you’ve even left the stage.
